It’s brickstameet time again! And this time, we’re connecting more than just plastic bricks and taking photos of them. We’re connecting with our friend from across the ditch.
This Melbourne #brickstameet will have an international flavour. Well, maybe a “pineapple lumps” flavour from across the Tasman Sea?
We’re excited to have @harleyquin from New Zealand join us in Melbourne as we wander the streets shooting LEGO.

Putting the meet into brickstameet
LEGO and toy photography meet-ups are so much more than LEGO and toy photography meet-ups. They’re an opportunity to physically connect with peers. They’re a chance to chat with friends made through shared passions and pastimes. It’s an occasion to talk, share, learn, teach and laugh.

This will be the 5th brickstameet since they started in 2015: Federation Square, Hosier Lane and Melbourne’s laneways, Botanical Gardens, Brickvention, and now Docklands and Southbank. Each meet-up sees familiar and new faces, kids with their parents in tow and friends with their kids in tow.
By the 3rd meet-up, I’d pretty much put my camera away and focussed on chatting, catching up with previous attendees, meeting new LEGO photographers, and helping out with setting up photos.
Like every brickstameet, this one will be no different in that I’ll agonise over toy choices. And like the previous couple, these choices might not see the light of day. But just because they won’t be used as fodder, it doesn’t mean they won’t be present for a great day.
If you’re in Melbourne on the 24th of June, or if you can make it to Melbourne like CJ, we’d love to socialise with you. We might even squeeze in some toy photography! All the details can be found here.
